HBO has released some major True Blood Season 6 casting news.

According to TV Line, the Polish actress will portray an especially strong and fearsome member of the undead, someone sources describe as "on par with the Eric Northmans and Bill Comptons of the world."

True Blood Quotes

I don't know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago


I'm not a monster, I'm a buddhist!
